Reasons to start an affiliate podcast and the excuses to avoid AIS 29
If you want to launch an affiliate focused podcast, you have all the good reasons to do it. But what are the excuses you want to avoid and the things that get in the way of you starting your podcast. This solocast and episode is inspired by a recent Gary Vaynerchuk podcast featuring Mike Posner where Mike said he felt he needed the professional production to get his off the ground. Hold up! No you don't, look at Gary Vee, he's proof you don't need production as that is exactly how he got started. His first YouTube videos were raw and the opposite of production. Record yourself, you got copies of your life on Instagram, TikTok, so why not record your professional work life? Maybe your podcast is a hobby that you want to just do and make some affiliate revenue off of it. Fabulous! Get started, don't use any excuse to not get started. Big shoutout to Tom Hunt of fame.so for all the amazing tips he's shared over the years.
